1 ˝ Teaspoons water
1/8 teaspoon vanilla
1/8 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup pecan halves

Directions:
Directions:
In a small bowl combine brown sugar, water, vanilla and kosher salt stirring to combine. Don’t worry that the sugar and salt won’t be all dissolved. Set this at the ready next to your stove as this recipe goes really quickly

In a medium to large sauce pan over medium heat, toast pecans for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent burning. When you begin to smell a lovely, nutty aroma, they’re done

Quickly drizzle the sugar mixture into the pan, on top of the pecans, stirring the nuts as you drizzle. Stir constantly for about 15 seconds, until the Pecans are thoroughly coated in the sugar mixture. Immediately remove from heat so they don’t burn

Spread the pecans on a piece of parchment to cool. Once cool, you can break the nuts apart if needed

Enjoy immediately or store in An airtight container. The pecans will be slightly sticky at first, but the coating hardens further within a few hours.
